review 1: I was lucky to receive an advanced reader copy of Jamie Cat Callan's delightful book Ooh La La: French Women's Secrets to Feeling Beautiful Everyday. Part memoir, part self-improvement guide, Jamie's charming voice sings off the page. Seriously, it's like reading a book written by your best friend-- one you go to advice for. From sex to lingerie to finding the perfect perfume, Jamie is honest and open, no subject taboo. While it's clear Jamie certainly has an affinity for all things French, and we meet so many wonderful people on Jamie's quest to capture her Ooh La La, what I really like about her book is it's all about self-empowerment, how we women all have our own Ooh La La no matter what country we come from, no matter our size, no matter our age. Even better- you don'... moret need to take a trip to Paris to find your Ooh La La;it rests within you.
review 2: Eh. I read her first book and found this book to be more of the same. The author talks about what it is that makes French women French. It is, however, presented in a Francophile way--a little too shiny and clean for my tastes. I liked the mostly upbeat tone of the book and really appreciated the little focus on her own personal life. She mentions her past here and there, but not enough to become very annoying, thankfully. The author discusses what women do, from flirting, to throwing dinner parties to how they dress. Some of it is repetitive from her first book, some not so much. I didn't really feel like I got much out of this, I have to say. If you liked her first book, you'll probably like the second. But you aren't missing much if you haven't read it. less
